J'TAIME SIGN

J'TAIME SIGN

The pièce de résistance of the show. Iconic red large format neon. Protective caging designed to protect the actors was later added to the top of each letter (perfectly fitted) so the sign can be displayed at a lower height level safely. Oh, you can spot legendary French composer Michel Legrand in this pic with our Director Emma Rice and Company!
